The new Zhejiang Cancer Hospital Shaoxing Campus of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Shaoxing, Zhejiang, China) is expected to be completed in 2025.
The 5 million-square-foot, 2,500-bed cancer hospital will house multiple disciplines, as well as clinical care, research, and trials, and integrate a large-scale medical technology platform, surgery center platform, medical transformation platform, and a visitor center platform. Each specialty will have a simulation training classroom near its clinic to foster real-time training on tumor treatment, medical skills, physiotherapy, and other methods.
The design of the cancer center, delivered by HDR (San Francisco and Shanghai), will focus on delivering privacy, comfort, warmth, and hope for cancer patients. Because the hospital can be a “second home” for patients who are enduring long and exhausting treatments, sub-waiting spaces for admission, discharge, examination, and treatment areas are designed to be comfortable and warm. In the infusion areas, the design will incorporate natural lighting, while offering privacy and comfort to patients.
The exterior design will feature a combination of warm colors and materials, including wood-looking aluminum plate and glass, to tie in with the region while creating a welcoming environment.
